Recipe for Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

This is my adapted “healthful” version of a friend’s recipe.

These have quickly become a favorite! After all, everything’s better with chocolate – especially dark chocolate!

In a mixing bowl, combine the following ingredients:
1 cup whole wheat flour
¾ cup bread flour
2 Tbsp ground flax seed
¼ cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt

In another mixing bowl, combine the following ingredients:
1 egg
½ cup vegetable oil
½ cup plain yogurt
1 tsp vanilla

Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients just until moistened.

Fold in:
1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 3 medium)
¾ cup chocolate chips

Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 350 degrees for 22 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Cool for five minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.

This recipe makes 12 to 16 muffins.
